Hain Celestial has announced that the head of its UK business is to leave the company.

The US-based natural and organics group said that David Arrow will leave at the end of July to "pursue other opportunities".

Arrow's departure comes after the recent appointment of Peter McPhillips as executive chairman of Hain's operations across Europe.

Arrow said he was "extremely proud" to have established Hain's business in the UK but added that the "time is now right for me to pursue new challenges".
